Default BUG on T14MZ

Hello everyone,

I was flying with my Raptor 90 this afternoon and my T14 decided to stop working.
During the flight and without touching the screen or any switch button, the TX started to BIP and switched to a different model in memory (another heli I used yesterday)

It displayed the screen asking if you want to start broadcasting and Futaba logo was orange and flashing

Obviously my Raptor cashed because I was not able to control it anymore, but failsafe module worked perfectly and saved my engine...

I've been using this TX for 3 years almost every weekend (when the weather allows us to fly) without any problem.

Does anyone have any feedback about that?
I can remember having read some problems with memory card, the TX was reseting when using pictures/sounds from it?

I used my 14MZ for 7 years and never had an issue with pictures or sounds stored on the CF card being used while flying. I do not recall ever hearing about such issues either. I also have never heard of this particular issue either.

I suggest you send the TX to your nearest service center to be looked over.

Thanks for answer.
I found the root cause of my issue... my CF card seems to be broken.

I've tried to read it on my computer with a card reader and I hardly managed to open it.
When I finally get the mem card detected I tried to copy/paste some files but it failed.

I tried to use my card reader with others mem card and no problem...
